NEED help with your front lawn? Garden designer Diarmuid Gavin to the rescue!

Gavin is calling on people in Clare who have ambitions big or small for their gardens to get in touch.

“Gardening Together is a show born out of lockdown. It’s an informative, warm and humorous take on the craft of gardening and the skill of garden designers.

“I’ve been holed up at home like everybody for the past 10 weeks, but in these desperate times, I like many people, have found enormous comfort in my garden, by getting out there for a couple of hours every day, even to do the most menial of tasks, there are enormous mental health benefits.

“I’d like to share my gardening therapy, as I like to call it, by designing and helping create a wide range of gardens in this series, all from my Wicklow garden which I have been creating for the past five years. So, whether you’ve just moved into a new house or have a mature garden that needs refreshing, get in touch now. We’re looking for all kinds of people to take part from complete novices to seasoned gardeners,” Gavin said.

To get in touch, email gardening@waddellmedia.com with a short description about yourself and why you’d like Diarmuid to design your garden. Include a short video of up to five minutes to show them your garden and outline what you’d like to achieve in the coming weeks.  

Or if you prefer to ask a question, send them a short video with your question or problem which Diarmuid will answer when the series airs in July.
